Anas “happy system brought” after FIFA life ban on Nyantakyi

Renowned African undercover investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, has reacted to FIFA’s life ban of Ghana’s former Football Association president, Kwesi Nyantakyi, after a film by Anas caught the football boss collecting a bribe of $65, 000 in violation of their ethics code including bribery and corruption.

Anas who was speaking at a session at the Africa Investigative Journalism Conference in Johannesburg, South Africa, said, “I have not seen the story and so I would say no comment. I am not one who rejoices at another’s misfortune. I did not fight against a personality but against a system and I am happy the system has been brought down.”

According to a Reuters report, Nyantakyi, a former member of FIFA’s general council, was found guilty after being filmed in a hotel room appearing to be receiving the bribe from a supposed businessman seeking to sponsor the Ghanaian football league.

Nyantakyi was also fined 500,000 Swiss Francs ($498,000).
